It is a well-known problem that developers of hypermedia
applications need assistance for modeling and maintaining
application-specific hypermedia structures. In the past, vari-
ous hypermedia engines have been proposed to support these
tasks. Until now, hypermedia engines either provided a fixed
hypermedia data model and left extensions to the hyper-
media application or they left the modeling of the hyper-
media data completely to the application developer and only
provided storage functionality which had to be plugged into
the data model by the application developer. As an alterna-
